We've joked that Weekly Standard Editor/PNAC signatory/Fox News Contributer William "The Bloody" Kristol is a soulless vampire, but he obviously wants to leave no doubt in our mind.

Listen to him on the subject of the SCHIP Amendment:

KRISTOL: First of all, whenever I hear anything described as ‘a heartless assault on our children,' I tend to be...think it's a pretty good thing...

WALLACE: I think a lot of our viewers would not be surprised to hear that...

KRISTOL: ...I'm happy that the President's willing to do something bad for the kids. You do wonder about the Democrats, putting a 12 year old, I mean, how pathetic is that? A 12-year-old kid giving the radio address, Nancy Pelosi pretending she's praying for the President. You really wonder how stupid they think the American people are. This is...look, poor children are covered by Medicaid, this was to cover children from 100% to 200% over poverty. The Democrats are now extending it up over 300% above the poverty line. If you think you need to help children and families over 200% - 300% over poverty line, which is already double to triple over poverty, you can do two ways: expand government insurance or make it easier for families to buy private insurance. Republicans want to try to make it easier through the tax code for families to get private insurance; Democrats want to expand government insurance. I think it's a good philosophical fight for Republicans, if they can explain the issue well enough that the Democrats can't simply get away with demagoguery.

I love it. The Democrats are trying to get away with demagoguery? Yeah, Republicans never do that.
